Battle of Franklin talk at North Carolina CWRT Saturday May 19

Tomorrow I will be speaking for the second time to the North Carolina Civil War Round Table in Burlington, NC, this time about the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee.  When I spoke to this group last year about Jacob Cox and his role in North Carolina, the group noted that they seldom heard much about the war in the West.  This in fact is a phenomenon I too have noticed — the groups in the West seldom talk about the East, and vice versa.  It’s not quite as divided as North vs. South, of course, but certainly of interest.

Below is a photo of me with Ed Bearss outside the Carter House — Jacob Cox’s headquarters that day — and the Kurz and Allison painting of the battle showing Jacob Cox encouraging his men to stem the Confederate tide and save the day.  741
